is an invasive application that shows online ads and pop-up messages as soon as it gets installed in the main browser. can also produce sudden page redirects through modifications in the search engine and the homepage of your main web browser.

The virus

Any program that wants to fill the computer’s screen with advertisements as you search the web can be deemed to be unwelcome. seems to be a program of this kind since a significant number of web users have recently voiced their concerns regarding the app’s ability to produce enormous amounts of internet advertisements, irritating banners, pop-up notifications and even automatic page redirects to pages which are primarily focused on the selling of different goods.

In addition to the ad-induced annoyance, the people who have on their machines complain that this software will also potentially make unwanted changes to the browser in which it is mounted. A replacement of the homepage address and the default search engine, are two of the possible “improvements” that can be made.

Up until now, we know that can integrate with Chrome, Firefox and Opera, but other browsers such as IE, Edge and Safari may also be targets for the unwelcome application. Due to all of its annoying features and behavior, we believe this program can be classified as a browser hijacker.

If you have never heard of browser hijackers before, we should say that these apps, as scary as they may sound, have nothing in common with viruses or malware. Initially, the browser hijackers may  appear to be dangerous and quite irritating but they typically don’t attempt to mess with user data or the system as Trojans, ransomware and other malware threats will certainly do.

However, it is still better not to keep or any similar app ,like, in your computer and browser because this software, tough lacking any particular harmful abilities, may still contribute to your exposure to viruses and other security hazards, including the aforementioned ransomware and Trojans. Therefore, our suggestion is to uninstall it with the help of reliable removal tool or manually.

What to expect if you have in your system?

You would probably have no idea how to handle the browser hijacker and how to remove its nagging ads and unwanted browser “improvements” as the program may not want to get removed the usual way. Most browser hijackers don’t have a quick uninstall option or a menu that allows the users to customize their ad-generating and page-redirecting activities. That’s why a reliable software removal tool  is usually the most effective and quick way to get rid of this software. Of course, manual uninstallation is also possible and you can find instructions for that in the removal guide below.

In most situations, browser hijackers are included is the installation package of some other application and are typically installed along with it when you run the Automatic setup. The good thing is, if you specifically select the Advanced/Custom installation option in the installer, you can deactivate the hijacker’s installation and avoid the ad disturbance that it may cause.
